Statement Regarding Capitol Building Mayhem

January 12, 2021

Last Wednesday, January 6, 2021, a half million supporters of President Trump gathered in Washington D.C. at a rally and peaceful protest to voice their disdain for the outrageous and obviously fraudulent and rigged election. During the rally a faction of protesters separated themselves from the majority of peaceful rally-goers and were able to breach security, working their way inside the Capitol building. While many of them were probably supporters of Trump, some may not have been, yet the storming of our nation’s Capitol should not have occurred.

However, let’s be clear, 99% of those attending the rally did not enter the Capitol building. A fraction of a percent of justifiably pissed off Trump supporters let their frustrations get the best of them.

Although it wasn’t right for a fringe group to storm the Capitol, the frustration had built up to a point where the disenfranchised voters of this country had had enough. What can anyone expect when for two months post-election Democrats and leftist media pundits ignored the blatant fraud that undeniably occurred while judges, justices and courts refused to consider and allow Trump’s legal team to even present its case.

To that end, it is my belief that pro-fascists in the misnamed organization known as “antifa” were there disguised as Trump supporters to deceive and cause havoc. That is in their Marxist playbook. Real Trump supporters don’t stoop to the standards of Black Lives Matter (BLM) and “antifa” and storm anything. A few broken windows and some other slight damage doesn’t compare to the billions of dollars in damage and death that BLM, “antifa” and other pro-fascist groups caused last summer all over the country, which Senator Kamala Harris publicly supported.

Joe Biden, politicians, fake journalists and other pundits should spare me and the rest of the country the condemnation with their ridiculous lectures and accusations of President Trump having incited this. He didn’t incite anything, he called for peace, and he did it quickly.

The unjustifiable hatred for our President and vitriol for those who want justice in this country is dangerous, irrational and needs to stop. Let it be known, it is the leftist media, which is most of the media today, including Chris Cuomo, Don Lemon, Joe Scarborough, Brian Stelter, Van Jones, Joy Reid, Chuck Todd and others that are inciting and dividing, not supporters of President Trump. The media and leftist, hateful politicians like Pelosi, Waters, Schumer, Schiff, Nadler and others caused this and should be ashamed.

It is now time for those who are responsible for this mayhem to take responsibility and be accountable. It starts at the top. Right now I’m calling for Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to step down from their positions in office, resign from politics altogether and allow others who are more competent and not derisive with their language to fill their seats. Although in the Democrat party it’ll be hard to find such a leader.
